Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS - EMILY SEL­LECK

THE av­er­age joe suf­fers through a hang­over with greasy food and a Ga­torade.

But if you have a cool $285 to splash on this quick fix, you can bounce back af­ter a night out in less than 30 min­utes.

At least three clin­ics across the Gold Coast have started of­fer­ing sa­line drips that can boost your im­mune sys­tem – and blast away sore heads.

Gaynor Simp­son, owner of CosMediSpa at Ox­en­ford, said the ‘In­tra­venous In­fu­sion Ther­a­pies’ drips were es­pe­cially pop­u­lar dur­ing party sea­son.

“The vi­tams go straight to the cells in your body so you feel bet­ter right away,” she said.

At CosMediSpa, costs range from $185 for a Vi­ta­mic C drip to $285 for the My­ers Cock­tail.

“The My­ers Cock­tail has multi B, vi­ta­mic C, glu­tathione and mag­ne­sium,” Ms Simp­son said. “When­ever we get new clients in, their first re­ac­tion is that they feel en­er­gised, their minds are sharper (and) it even helps pain re­lief.”

Ms Simp­son said her clients were an even split of women and men with ages rang­ing from 18 to 72 – she has even ad­min­is­tered a drip at a pri­vate res­i­dence for an in­ter­na­tional celebrity vis­it­ing the Coast.
